‘Let’s get naked this Pride’: Gay editor defends nudity at Toronto’s ‘family friendly’ parade

By Peter Baklinski, LifeSite News


An editor at Canada’s leading homosexual news agency has defended nudity at Toronto’s annual Pride parade, which is billed as a “family friendly” event.


It’s just “queer people celebrating their sexuality,” wrote Danny Glenwright, managing editor at Xtra, last week in a piece titled “Let’s get naked this Pride.”



Glenwright defended exposing the public to what he called “our wanton sexuality and hedonism” as par for the course of expanding gay rights.



“It’s what we do with our naked bodies that kept us gays down for so long,” he wrote.



Glenwright mockingly suggested that those who have a problem with nakedness at the parade can “stay home” with their children and watch on TV “more palatable aspects of our world” such as “priests raping children.”



“I prefer to leave that all behind for a few hours on Pride and head downtown to celebrate gay rights and gay sex — and to protest those who hate us gays and the ways we seek pleasure.”



Glenwright’s piece was a response to Toronto District School Board trustee Sam Sotiropoulos, who voiced his concern earlier this month over children viewing illegal public nudity at the event.
